Philosophy of chemistry


The plural "philosophie des sciences" which has prevailed in the French language may be due to Auguste Comte's longstanding influence, since he strongly advocated a regional epistemology. The result is that chemistry has not been totally neglected. As I have argued elsewhere, chemistry helped shape the French tradition, especially in what can be labeled its "historical turn" and its focus on theories of matter.
